NEWS & EVENTS

 

Lockdown might have put a hold on personal appearances and a lot of the events that normally fill an author's year, but there's a lot going on behind the scenes right now!

01

New Mailing List - sign up now!

 

Trust me when I tell you that a good mailing list is the lifeblood of any author's career. Signing up is one of the best possible ways to ensure I can keep writing and pushing out new stories - which is why I'm so grateful for each and every sign up!

 

So what's in it for you? Well, for starters, you get a FREE novelette - ANCIENT - from the K Department Lovecraft Archive just as soon as you tell me which email address you want it sent to. Every now and then you'll get an EXCLUSIVE short story for mailing list subscribers, as well as behind-the-scenes details about the books and the characters that you won't find anywhere else. And, of course, you'll also get immediate access to all the news, special offers and upcoming events as soon as they drop.

 

And there will be a monthly news letter - but don't worry, I won't be spamming you with constant updates and you can unsubscribe at any time. I want you to enjoy the content you receive in exchange for entrusting me with your email address - and rest assured, you CAN trust me. When you first sign up you'll need to confirm you genuinely want access, and I will never share your email address with anyone else.

 

The most important weapon in an author's arsenal isn't a pen or a keyboard - it's the FANS. I can write a million books and never achieve a damn thing without your support - we're in this together!

Ancient - FREE now when you join the mailing list!

Occupied Yugoslavia, 1943. In the midst of a beautiful valley of lush trees and wholesome crops, three German soldiers are dead...maybe worse than dead. Oberleutnant Strebinger's mission is to find out why, but it seems everyone else has a different agenda - the local mayor, his ruthless local allies, and most of all the civilian sent from Berlin by the infamous Eckartstrasse. Together, they are drawn inexorably to the high mountain that casts a long shadow over a seemingly perfect village...

And when Strebinger learns the truth waiting for them, he'll wish he'd believed the lies...

 

ANCIENT is the first in a series of K Department short stories, novelettes and the occasional novella that are VERY loosely inspired by H.P. Lovecraft stories. First to get the K Department treatment is one of Lovecraft's more obscure stories, "The Very Old Folk". Don't worry if you've never heard of it - even some hardcore Lovecraft fans haven't! But I'm really excited about this story, and about some of the others coming up soon.

This one is ready to send to you - just sign up to the mailing list here and it will be heading your way...

"Afterlight"

 

I'm currently trying to answer that age-old question that has haunted scholars since March 2020 - can an author turn a mandatory 10-day COVID quarantine into 50,000 words of a new novel? Head over to https://www.facebook.com/AuthorLassen to find out!
